UN Logistics Coordinator Jobs in Nigeria

About the mission:

Solidarites International opened the Nigeria mission over the 2016 summer.

Starting with a single project, this mission has quickly expanded and SI is now a major WASH and shelter actor in the Borno State.

After fast growth it is not the time for the mission to settle and be structured in depth.

The current political and military crisis has affected millions of lives in the area and SI is answering the targeted needs of displaced populations and host communities in Maiduguri suburbs, but also is IDPs camps and host communities in Borno State.

The targeted areas of intervention are WASH (wide range of activities), shelter and logistics with food security and livelihood added to our portfolio more recently.

Key Points:

  • This mission if young but rather strong and has potential to continue developing relevant and mandate-based interventions to cover the humanitarian needs in the area and to ensure a real humanitarian impact.
  • The teams are well staffed with very diverse profiles (half former SI, large part of former national staffs from several SI missions, various backgrounds and technicalities). Only one position remains to be filled at the moment (Deputy Country Director in charge of programs Ngala).
  • Overall the atmosphere is very good, people get along and there should be no hidden conflict to deal with.

    About the job:

    Under the supervision of his Country Director and with the support of headquarters teams, the Deputy Country Director for Programs is responsible for :

    Priorities for the 2/3 first months

    Kick off of new projects purchases

    Specific stakes and challenges :


    The team in coordination office is composed by

  • Deputy Log Coordinator (expatriate)
  • IT Responsible
  • Stock Manager
  • Procurement Manager, who is the manager of 2 purchase officers
  • Moreover, the Log Coordinator has a functional link with the Log Managers in the bases.


  • The main partners are the NGOs of the consortium projects and WFP in Monguno. The cluster meeting participation is a very important part of the log Coordinator part


  • The specificity and difficulty of the context implies challenges in the carry on of the daily logistics activities


  • SI’s activities are sometimes requiring strong technical skills and heavy machinery (borehole drillings…). Thus, SI has to rely on
    contractors to conduct those works which should be very closely monitored.
  • A key management point is that in Maiduguri are located both an operational base and most of the coordination team. It will be important to ensure that communication schemes are in place and that there is no confusion between base and coordination (decision making, roles and responsibilities).
